Glenn Beck: America's crawl to socialism


Congressman Mike Pence

GLENN: Congressman Mike Pence from Indiana, he is -- we were talking yesterday a little bit about the SCHIP which is children's healthcare, and children's healthcare, this is so much bullcrap, I can't even stand it. It was, "We've got to help the children, we have to help the children," and now it's -- and underprivileged children and poor children. Now it's people who are making $60,000 a year and we've got to help the children. And they've just expanded it, and they are expanding and expanding and expanding. Now it takes 22.4 million new smokers, new -- they are funding it through smoking, new smokers, 22.4 million new smokers to be able to pay for what they've just passed. Well, how are they going to do that? How does that work?

Well, I was talking to Congressman Pence about it yesterday, and we touched upon something that is in the new stimulus package, and I just gave it to you a minute ago. In Obama's new stimulus package, $600 million to address -- and I'm quoting -- to address shortages and prepare our country for universal healthcare. This goes back to what I told you before: They are going to take this country by dribs and drabs. If you want to have an open debate about healthcare, then let's do it. If you want to say, "I want to be a socialist country," then let's have that conversation. But that's not the way it's happening. They are just taking it from you at night. Your freedoms, your economic freedom, the idea of capitalism, the idea that you control your own life and you make your own decisions, it's all going away and Congressman Pence is here to talk toe about this a little more. Congressman, how are you?

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Hey, good morning, Glenn. Thanks so much for going off on this this morning. You are spot on as I said before, and I think the American people get a better understanding of the so-called stimulus bill the Democrats are -- they see that it is slow, it's wasteful and it really, as you've identified, it is laying a foundation for a massive expansion of government control in healthcare and so --

GLENN: Let's just touch on, first on slow. When you know the facts on this stimulus -- the idea of the stimulus package is, remember, we are a country -- we're either trying to fix this or we're not, right?

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Right, right.

GLENN: So the idea is we're a consumer nation now and nobody's spending any money because either they don't have any money or they're living in fear. So no money is being spent and that stops the economy because we no longer build things. We just buy things. So the idea of the stimulus package is get money back into the hands of the American taxpayer, get it into the hands -- this was their excuse of -- it wasn't redistribution of wealth. It was, "No, poor people will spend it faster. So that's why we have to go for the poor, because we need to have this money into the system as quickly as possible." Explain what you mean by how slow this stimulus package is.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Well, I'll just explain to you what the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office outlined this week. In looking at the house Democrats stimulus bill, they found that less than half of their stimulus proposal --

GLENN: We're talking a trillion dollars, gang.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Right, right, right. Less than half of it would be spent before the beginning of 2011. So, you know, where's the urgency here? And, of course, you know, that's why Republicans continue to believe what we ought to be passing is a stimulus bill that doesn't put more money in the hands of government to be passed out in slow and wasteful ways but that we pass fast acting tax relief that puts money this year right now in the pockets of working families, small businesses and family farms who can make those decisions for themselves and put our ailing economy back on its feet.

GLENN: Congressman, I mean, look, I'm becoming more and more libertarian every day and I'm more and more pissed off at the Republicans every day. So I'm just going to speak frankly with you, and I'm sorry if you happen to be on the receiving end of this. But the stimulus package the Republicans should be pushing for is a tax cut. The fastest way, the most efficient way to get money into the hands of the American people is to say we're immediately cutting your taxes. You want to help businesses? Reduce the corporate income tax so we're at least competitive in the world. Make it 20%. Here's an idea. You really want to be successful, make it 15%, but at least let us be competitive. That's the -- what the Republicans seem to be doing, congressman, is they seem to be taking and saying, "Well, okay, I don't want to do that because that's way too much. Instead I'll do half of that or I'll change that a little bit." Throw the soup out. The stock is bad. The idea is tax cuts!

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Well, let me tell you, I can't speak for some of my Republican colleagues in the Senate, but I'll tell you House Republicans -- and you know I'm a minor member of leadership now as the conference chairman. I'm going to tell you what: House Republicans formed a working group a few weeks back and we are in the process of presenting a proposal for stimulating this economy that is all tax relief. Glenn, you are going to love it. It's tax relief for working families, for small businesses, and it's tax relief that would impact the economy right now, this year.

GLENN: What about the rich? What about the rich? I mean, let's stop with the class warfare, too.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: No, no, we're talking about tax cuts that would affect not 95% of Americans the way the Democrats are doing their rebate thing which is really -- you know better than most the rebate stuff we did last spring and the tax, so-called tax cuts in the Democrat stimulus bill look a whole lot more like welfare than they do like tax relief. You are just passing out checks to people, an awful lot of people that didn't pay taxes to begin with.

GLENN: Right.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: What we need is across-the-board tax relief that affects every American business and every single tax paying American.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you. Okay. Congressman -- I'm sorry. It's just, I'm frustrated because I think our republic is at stake. I think we are, I think we are entering dangerous, dangerous territories where when people like Barney Frank continue to say, "Oh, there's corruption, there's corruption," and they're hypocrites and they are pointing their finger some place else and haven't taken the beam out of their own eye. When this stimulus package puts us behind the eight ball, when the dollar is devalued to staggering amounts, when these banks finally do collapse, no matter how many trillions of dollars we spend and now we have a socialized nation, I think you have disenfranchisement that is going to bubble over if the people in Washington don't show that there's some sort of common sense leadership that is speaking the language of the rest of the country. We've got enough people speaking the language of government and socialism. We don't have anybody really articulating clearly, loudly the idea that failure is a part of life, and I think somebody that would stand up and say, "You know what, America, I would rather go through a depression because I trust you will be good to your neighbor and I know we'll make it together because we made it before" than to sell out our very system and every value that we stand for and come out the other end as France. When will I hear that from the Republicans?

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Well, I tell you, you've got to visit my YouTube page, Glenn, and you've got to visit, you've got to take a look at who Republicans have been saying. John Boehner, our Republican leader, has been very consistent challenging the stimulus bill saying, listen, these guys think we can borrow and spend our way back to a growing economy. Republicans don't believe that. Republicans know what Glenn Beck knows, what your millions of listeners know, that the cure for what ails this economy will not be found in the Treasury, it will not be found in the pocketbooks of tax paying Americans. The cure for what ails this economy will be found when we bring tax relief to Americans to invest their own resources, creativity, demonstrate their resilience and perseverance on this economy on their own. The strength of America's not in her federal government. The strength of America is among the American people and that's why you saw Republicans yesterday overwhelmingly oppose the bailout. I opposed it the first two times last fall.

GLENN: God bless you.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: I don't believe the charge against it, as you know.

GLENN: God bless you.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: We're dug in on it, man. Look, there's a choice, there's a conflict of visions here. Republicans believe that fast-acting tax relief is the way to get this economy moving again. Democrats believe we can borrow and spend and bail our way back to a growing America, and the American people need to pick up the phone and start sending e-mails and letters and let their congressmen know which one they choose.

GLENN: Congressman, I appreciate it. Thank you so much for the good fight. You are not alone. There's a lot of people out there that are feeling the same way and the same frustration. Boy, that would just be -- if I were in congress, I'd be sure, I'd be the town cryer ringing that bell in the hallway saying, you guys, you don't know the trouble that is coming our way if we're not honest, if we're not up front, if we're not telling the American people the truth and we try to do things in the cover of darkness. It's just not going to end well.

CONGRESSMAN PENCE: Glenn, I've got to tell you your voice is in congress and conservatives on Capitol Hill are grateful every day.

GLENN: God bless you. Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention.

 

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.
